Center for Bio-integrated Electronics

Flexible thinking. Expansive ideas.

What is Bio-Integrated Electronics?

Bio-integrated electronic systems represent breakthrough technologies that eliminate the profound mismatch between the properties of biological systems (soft, curvilinear and transient) and those of modern semiconductor devices (rigid, planar and everlasting). The resulting platforms can integrate seamlessly and intimately onto/into essential organs of the human body to provide unprecedented diagnostic, therapeutic and surgical function with revolutionary capabilities for biomedical research and clinical healthcare.
